    In March 2020, Dr. Howard Zucker had his name on the infamous ‘Cuomo Death Order’ that has been blamed for the deaths of thousands of nursing residents. The New York State Health Department’s order stated that “no resident shall be denied re-admission or admission” to a nursing home “solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.” It even banned nursing homes from testing incoming patients to prevent cases from being detected. In nursing homes that complied with the order, residents swiftly began dying. By the end of the pandemic, 15% of the state’s nursing home residents were dead....

    New York City health officials on Monday unveiled the city's first public health vending machine, featuring free drug paraphernalia and anti-overdose meds for addicts. The big blue box was installed in Brooklyn on Monday and will offer potentially life-saving Naloxone to drug users who have overdosed on opioids, along with instructions on how to use the drug. Instead of snacks or sodas, the vending machine also has hygiene kits and safe sex kits for anyone with a New York City ZIP code to claim. Officials say similar machines in the U.S., Europe and Australia have demonstrated effectiveness at reducing overdose...

    OTTAWA, June 6 (Reuters) - Authorities in New York, Toronto and Ottawa on Tuesday warned residents about the health risks from air polluted by smoke from unprecedented early summer wildfires in eastern Canada. An unusually early and intense start to wildfire season has set Canada on track for its worst-ever year as warm and dry conditions are forecast to persist for months. There are blazes in nearly all of Canada's 10 provinces and territories, with Quebec the worst impacted due to multiple fires caused by lightning. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation issued a health advisory for counties...

    City officials’ new drug-themed vending machine is a huge hit with local addicts — who wasted no time cleaning it out overnight as they stocked up on its free crack pipes, lip balm and Narcan. “Yes, I love it,” drug user Evelyn Williams told The Post while standing at the “public health” vending machine in Brownsville, Brooklyn, on Tuesday. “They put it in yesterday, and it’s empty already. By 1 p.m., a drug-prevention-program worker was starting to restock the machine with more drug-test strips, Narcan and condoms — predicting the vending machine could need to be refilled “maybe twice a...

    ALBANY – Controversial “Clean Slate” legislation will no longer allow murder convictions and other serious felonies to get sealed after Albany Democrats tweaked bill language on Monday. The proposal would allow convicted people to apply to have their crimes nixed from their records after they serve their sentences, parole, and probation as well as a period of three years for misdemeanors and eight years for felonies. Narrowing the scope of the bill, which also exempts sex crimes, comes as Albany Democrats near a final deal on passing the bill before the scheduled end of the 2023 legislative session on Friday....

The machine cost the city $11,000 to install, and it also offers residents free COVID-19 testing, feminine sanitation products, hygiene kits, Vitamin C, and first aid kits. Residents must simply enter their zip code to gain access.

    A Hispanic New York City woman was arrested and charged with a hate crime for confronting a hulking transvestite male who was using the female employee bathroom to shower. The woman, a long-time, trusted employee, is now facing the total and complete annihilation of her life simply because she didn’t want to share a bathroom with a gigantic man. Daily Mail: A video captured the moment a New York City MTA worker slapped the phone out of a trans bus driver’s hand for recording her in the women’s locker room after telling her to use the men’s instead. Nana Mangual,...

    There’s no place like home? Mayor Eric Adams wants regular New Yorkers to literally welcome migrants flooding the Big Apple by revealing his latest idea to potentially put thousands of asylum seekers into private dwellings while paying local homeowners and landlords. “It is my vision to take the next step to this faith-based locales and then move to a private residence” Hizzoner said Monday during a City Hall press conference. “We can take that $4.2 billion — $4.3 [billion] maybe now — that we anticipate we have to spend and we can put it back in the pockets of everyday,...

    A supervising detective involved in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against President Donald Trump has been suspended for his secret ties to Michael Cohen. Cohen is Trump’s former attorney who turned on the 45th president in an effort to reduce his own prison sentence. Former associates of Cohen have warned that the disgraced lawyer will do or say anything about Trump to save himself. Jeremy Rosenberg, who investigates financial crimes for Bragg, was suspended when his relationship with Cohen was exposed, according to the New York Post. “The office is conducting a review of an investigator’s compliance with internal...

    A federal court ruling likely to drop this month should provide a good indication as to whether America still has a fully functioning First World justice system. The case, involving an investigation from New York Attorney General Letitia James into the supposed mismanagement of controversial news outlet, has received zero media coverage so far, despite it being as crude, brutish, and nakedly political as James’ other lawfare campaigns (notably against former President Trump and the NRA). In fact, it’s arguably worse, as it was clearly designed to dox VDare’s writers and volunteers and bankrupt the tiny outlet out...

    Records show Siemens agreed to boycott of Israeli goods to secure $360 million deal with Turkey Germany-based conglomerate Siemens agreed to boycott Israeli products to secure a $360 million deal to provide Turkey with high-speed trains, according to copy of the contract obtained by a pro-Israel watchdog group that contradicts months of public denials from the company. The agreement, which includes a signature and seal from Siemens, has a provision that "providers of goods and works, and their associates and subcontractors, shall be in strict compliance with the Boycott Regulations of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the League of...

    Supporters of the so-called Clean Slate Act rallied for its passage on Saturday in the waning days of the legislative session. The closely watched bill would seal most criminal records in New York state after a certain window of time. At a rally in the South Bronx, lawmakers and advocates made a final entreaty for Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie to secure its passage in that chamber. The legislative session in Albany ends on June 8, and while lawmakers say they’re hopeful for its passage, they’ve so far been tight-lipped on the holdup. “We all know it’s all the right thing...

    The deal to raise the debt ceiling for two years to the tune of $4 trillion while minimally cutting spending passed the House, thanks to the Democratic Party support. More Democrats voted for the compromise than Republicans did, which we all saw coming, given the vocal opposition from the party's conservative wing. Even more damning were the allegations that the $4 trillion increase wasn’t a Democratic Party pitch but Speaker Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) proposal. Yet, even on the Republican side of the aisle, you had staunch conservatives disagreeing. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), one of the most prominent spending hawks, voiced...

    It was the fall of 2022. This was the first of many on-the-record interviews that Licht had agreed to give me, and I wanted to know how CNN’s new leader planned to deal with another Donald Trump candidacy. Until recently Licht had been producing a successful late-night comedy show. Now, just a few months into his job running one of the world’s preeminent news organizations, he claimed to have a “simple” answer to the question that might very well come to define his legacy. “The media has absolutely, I believe, learned its lesson,” Licht said. Sensing my surprise, he grinned....
  • How Jews Were Scapegoated During the Pandemic

    It was common in the Middle Ages for Jews to get the blame for the spreading of disease. In the 14th century, Jews were accused of poisoning wells, infecting the water with something terrible that was then transferred to the whole community. There was of course never one shred of evidence of this. The Black Death had nothing to do with the Jews—it was a bacterial infection transferred through many sources—but they caught the blame anyway. Indeed, that’s where we get the phrase “poisoning the well.” It has anti-Semitic connotations in history. Scapegoating Jews is a habit with ancient origins....
  • Sen. Tedisco’s Veterans Internship Program (V.I.P.) Bill Passed by New York State Senate

    Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-44th Senate District) today announced that the New York State Senate has passed his bipartisan Veterans Internship Program (V.I.P.) legislation to enable honorably discharged veterans to participate in the legislature’s annual paid legislative internship program that could help lead them to future employment. Tedisco’s V.I.P. legislation (S.291/A.1347) sets aside 10 percent of the current legislative internship program positions in the Senate and Assembly for veterans to see the inner workings of the representative democracy they put their lives on the line to defend. Veteran participants in the Veterans Internship Program would receive a stipend that’s equivalent to...

    Five hundred cots have been set up and ready for use at a cavernous warehouse at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens as Mayor Eric Adams’ administration awaits federal approval to convert the space into a migrant shelter. New York City is bursting at the seams to house 45,800 asylum seekers in the 170 emergency sites that have been set up across the five boroughs. An additional 4,800 asylum seekers arrived at city shelters over the last two weeks alone, said mayoral spokesperson Kate Smart this week. The beds at JFK’s Building 197 and multiple trailers outfitted with showers...

    Jesse Morgan drove a tractor trailer for a contractor working for the U.S. Postal Service. Shortly after the 2020 election, Morgan made these claims at a press conference held by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society: On October 21, 2020, Jesse drove his truck and trailer from Bethpage, New York, to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, loaded with as many as 288,000 completed ballots. In addition, there were two large trays of mixed mail, bound for Lancaster. Those were in the front of the trailer. Jesse drove the trailer to Harrisburg, but was not allowed to unload. After a six-hour wait,...
